BELMONT, NC  January 2, 2014 – Industrial Distribution Group, Inc. (“IDG”), a leading provider of maintenance, repair, operations and production (“MROP”) products and integrated supply solutions to diverse end markets, announced today that it has completed the acquisitions of Tommy White Supply Co.
